Bird Walk For Beginners In Grass Valley

Sunday, August 18, 2019

8:00 -10:00 AM

Leader: Dan Stewart  530-265-4677 dcstew@outlook.com

Meet in the Briar Patch parking lot at 8:00AM.

This walk is designed for beginners, but more skilled birders are helpful and welcome. We’ll talk about binoculars, how and where to find birds, what to look for when you find one. We meet at 8:00 AM in the parking lot of the Briar Patch Market on Sierra College Drive in Grass Valley. We walk for a little less than two miles and it usually takes about two hours. Fifteen to twenty different species are almost guaranteed, especially with enough sharp eyes and ears. It’s a nice walk up over the hill at Sierra College and back to the Briar Patch. Come on out and help us find and identify some birds.
